- The Jaca's Chrismon is a masterpiece of the basic concepts of its era, and the Romanesque. In the ring, it inscribed in latin the controversial issue of Trinity of persons and Oneness of God "In this sculpture recognizes, reader, as follows: P designates the Father, A to the Begotten and the double (letter) to the Spirit begetter, the three are really one and the same Lord". In the inscriptions with each of the lions who guard the Chrismon, it referred to the good people and the bad people. The letter P used as a greek letter, XPS, for the Christ name and the same letter P as a latin letter for Spirit, SPS.
My thanks to Aº Omedes for his permission to use his work on the Jaca signs.
